Condominium managers and building employees are not are a personal handyman for residents.
Condominium managers and building employees work for the board to maintain common areas. None are a personal handyman for residents. When not working for the corporation, some condo boards allow building employees to be hired by residents for in-suite tasks. This is a valued service to residents who would otherwise be required to employ a contractor less knowledgeable about their home. It provides additional income to building employees willing to provide service during their off-duty hours.
Best practices include management communicating and working with residents. Certain in-unit obligations such as duct cleaning, fan coil maintenance and pest control may be addressed by the corporation for the benefit of all.
